Kim Cattrall has moved on from her days in “Sex in the City,” but Samantha Jones is still with her.

“It’s odd, isn’t it? I don’t know how to feel about it,” Cattrall said of how Samantha’s absence was explained in the new series. “It’s so finite for me, so it doesn’t continue. This feels like an echo of the past.” (HBO Max and CNN are both part of Warner Bros. Discovery.)

Of her decision to move on from the franchise years before the new series, Cattrall said it is “a great wisdom to know when enough is enough.”

“I also didn’t want to compromise what the show was to me. The way forward seemed clear,” she said.Part of Samantha remains with Cattrall, she said, adding that “I played her, and I loved her. I felt ultimately protective of her.”She said she’s proud of her time as Samantha.
